12 Karmic Laws That Could Change Your Reality! :)


Faery Blessings:

Today I went to consciousreminder.com and found this interesting article on the 12 Laws of Karma and wanted to share it with you….so enjoy the article and Be Blessed!

 

“Karma is a Sanskrit word which means a deed or an act. Anything that we say or do is in fact, Karma.

Whenever we undertake any action we perform Karma and let it out into the universe. And for each Karma there is an opposite reaction, like the third law of motion. To see how Karma can bring change in your life, read on:


  • The first law of Karma states that whatever you do (or sow) you will receive the exact same in return (reap).
  • We are not mute spectators in the journey of life. We have to actively participate in it to make things happen.
  • The first step in changing the world or anything for that matter is to accept that it exists how it does.
  • If we want growth in our outer characteristics like career or relationships, we need to bring change within ourselves first of all.
  • We need to stop blaming on others when things don’t go the way we planned them. We are responsible for our own life.
  • There is no one important moment, everything is a chain reaction and all hold equal importance.
  • You need to focus your energies on one thing at a time. Multitask might sound good but it lowers efficiency.
  • Whenever you give something to anyone, when you put something out in the universe, don’t think of or expect what you will get in return.
  • The most important thing is to be present in the current moment. Thinking too much about the past or the future will make you miss the here and now.
  • Everything is subject to change but it can only be made possible when we have  learned from our past.
  • Don’t do anything expecting some kind of reward in return. When you learn to derive true joy from the act     of doing itself and not expect anything in return, that is when you have earned your greatest reward.
  • Anything in the world is only as significant and as important as the amount of energy and hard work put into it.

HOW TO  MUSTER THE TRUST? JUST DO IT!

Faery Blessings:

I wanted to share part of the reading plan I was doing with my daughter on "trusting God's process"....it helped enlighten me and I hope it does the same for you....short and sweet today....enjoy today's message and Be Blessed!


How to Muster the Trust

"What if finding a way to trust God in the unforeseen challenges is more difficult that it sounds? This is likely at times to be honest. And when that happens you will have to gather everything inside of you to muster the trust. It may not be easy, but it will be necessary for staying on track.

In Psalm 56:3 God says that when you are afraid you must put your trust in Him. There is no other option in who to trust and there is no other way through the fear. Plain and simple, it’s trust you must muster when the flesh fights to tap out when the going gets too tough.

Furthermore, Romans 15:13 states that you will be filled with peace BECAUSE you trusted in God. No claims that the peace comes before trusting, only after. Which means when you’re searching for peace in the midst of your struggle the only way to find it is if you put your trust in God!

How do you muster the trust when you’re afraid? Just do it! I know it sounds too easy, but it can be done. As I said on day one, I constantly tell myself over and again in times of struggle to, “trust in God’s process.” I’ll say it until all I can do is believe it. I’ll also speak verses that apply to the situation over myself as there is no weapon stronger to fight the enemy than the Word of God and the name of Jesus.

My prayer now as I write this and going out as you read this is that you’ll find that trust in God and His process. When it get’s tough, and it will, come back to speaking Scripture over yourself. Turn to God in your fear. Call out to Him when the trust is fading. When you do that, when you seek to put your trust in Him, He will give you peace. He will honor that and not forsake you. There is nothing stronger than the words and promises of our Almighty God."

CHOOSE YOUR BATTLES WISELY


Faery Blessings:

This week has been a challenging one for even me….it seems that my family was attacked on all sides with personal issues that felt as it was tearing the family apart…so I had to dig in and get down to the business of praying and holding my ground with the enemy to confront and let him know that he cannot have my family, but then God made me aware of some of the battles I was trying to fight were not mine to fight but His…..so this week has been a lesson in learning how to literally “Let Go and Let God”….so I wanted to share this excerpt from Joyce Meyer book  “100 Ways To Simplify Your Life”….enjoy today’s message and Be Blessed!

 

"Quite often, the simple life feels out of reach because of all the problems and challenges that crop up.  Trials and difficulties will happen, but it’s “how” we handle them that makes the difference.   There are far too many battles in life to try and fight them all, so we must  choose the ones we feel are worth the effort.  Many things are better off left alone.  Prayer and time also changes a lot of things, and just waiting for a while may save us a battle or two.  If you are confronted with a challenge, don’t respond right away.  Give yourself time to think about it, and wait a couple of days to decide.  Take the time to weigh your choices so you can make wise, solid decisions.

God told Jehoshaphat(see 2 Chronicles 20: 17-22) that he and his people did not need to fight the battle at hand, yet there were other times He did instruct His people to fight.  We need to listen to God and choose our battles carefully.  I lived for many years making a battle out of everything.  I prided myself inbeing a confronter, but I finally realized it often takes more courage to wait on God than it does to attack something in my own timing.

God told Jehoshaphat to worship, to sing, to praise, and to wait.  As he obeyed God, the enemy became confused and destroyed each other.  Are you in the habit of praying and thinking before you attack, or do you just attack and wonder why life gets so complex and frustrating?  Do you ever wonder why you are always dealing with something?  If so, maybe you need to simply not deal with everything that comes along.  Some things work themselves out if you give them time to do so.  Ask God for wisdom to recognize the difference between problems that have the potential to blaze and those that will likely smolder and burn themselves out.”

TRUE PROSPERITY: DO YOU HAVE IT IN YOUR LIFE?

Faery Blessings:

I used to think that true prosperity was when you had lots of money, a nice home, a new car, etc...you get the picture? Material things!!!  BUT NOW I know that it is way much more than that....I am rich because I have healthy children, a roof over my head, food in my mouth and a family who loves me.....I am rich...so today enjoy the short Daily Devo from Joyce Meyer and ask yourself, "do you have true prosperity?


“A person is never truly prosperous if all he has are things and money; real prosperity requires far more than that. The Bible gives a more complete approach to prosperity, and so should we.

When our bodies prosper, we are strong and physically healthy. Even if we currently have a physical ailment, we can pray for and expect God to help us. True prosperity includes peace of mind and contentment. When our souls prosper, we flourish on the inside. We are at peace; we are full of joy; we live with a sense of purpose; we are growing spiritually; and we have strong, loving relationships with others.

Jesus said that He came so we could have and enjoy life in abundance and to the full (see John 10:10). God is the God of abundance, and He wants us to live abundant lives filled with thanksgiving and joy.

Prayer Starter: I thank You, Father, that You prosper my body and my soul. I pray today for the health and the peace that You promise in Your Word. Thank You that I am made whole in You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

THE GENTLE ART OF SAYING NO! :)

 

Faery Blessings:

One of the hardest lessons that God ever taught me was not patience but one of learning to say "no", even to people I love....I used to be a Yes person and give everybody all my time, money and energy, only to find that "reciprocity" was no in their vocabulary....I was a giver and not a taker.....I did not even know how to ask other people for help when I truly needed it...so my journey began on learning to tell others "no" when it was not what God told me to do...now before I say "yes or no" to someone....I ask God to prick my heart to the truth of their intentions behind asking and do accordingly, trusting Him....so I wanted to share this article today from lifehack.com to maybe help others learn to say "no".....enjoy today's message and Be Blessed! :)


It’s a simple fact that you can never be productive if you take on too many commitments — you simply spread yourself too thin and will not be able to get anything done, at least not well or on time.

But requests for your time are coming in all the time — through phone, email, IM or in person. To stay productive, and minimize stress, you have to learn the Gentle Art of Saying No!

What’s so hard about saying no? Well, to start with, it can hurt, anger or disappoint the person you’re saying “no” to, and that’s not usually a fun task.


Here are the Top 10 tips for learning the Gentle Art of Saying No:


Value your time. Know your commitments, and how valuable your precious time is. Then, when someone asks you to dedicate some of your time to a new commitment, you’ll know that you simply cannot do it. And tell them that: “I just can’t right now … my plate is overloaded as it is.”

Know your priorities. Even if you do have some extra time (which for many of us is rare), is this new commitment really the way you want to spend that time? For myself, I know that more commitments means less time with my wife and kids, who are more important to me than anything.

Practice saying no. Practice makes perfect. Saying “no” as often as you can is a great way to get better at it and more comfortable with saying the word. And sometimes, repeating the word is the only way to get a message through to extremely persistent people. When they keep insisting, just keep saying no. Eventually, they’ll get the message.

Don’t apologize. A common way to start out is “I’m sorry but …” as people think that it sounds more polite. While politeness is important, apologizing just makes it sound weaker. You need to be firm, and unapologetic about guarding your time.

Stop being nice. Again, it’s important to be polite, but being nice by saying yes all the time only hurts you. When you make it easy for people to grab your time (or money), they will continue to do it. But if you erect a wall, they will look for easier targets. Show them that your time is well guarded by being firm and turning down as many requests (that are not on your top priority list) as possible.

Say no to your boss. Sometimes we feel that we have to say yes to our boss — they’re our boss, right? And if we say “no” then we look like we can’t handle the work — at least, that’s the common reasoning. But in fact, it’s the opposite — explain to your boss that by taking on too many commitments, you are weakening your productivity and jeopardizing your existing commitments. If your boss insists that you take on the project, go over your project or task list and ask him/her to re-prioritize, explaining that there’s only so much you can take on at one time.

Pre-empting. It’s often much easier to pre-empt requests than to say “no” to them after the request has been made. If you know that requests are likely to be made, perhaps in a meeting, just say to everyone as soon as you come into the meeting, “Look guys, just to let you know, my week is booked full with some urgent projects and I won’t be able to take on any new requests.”

Get back to you. Instead of providing an answer then and there, it’s often better to tell the person you’ll give their request some thought and get back to them. This will allow you to give it some consideration, and check your commitments and priorities. Then, if you can’t take on the request, simply tell them: “After giving this some thought, and checking my commitments, I won’t be able to accommodate the request at this time.” At least you gave it some consideration.

Maybe later. If this is an option that you’d like to keep open, instead of just shutting the door on the person, it’s often better to just say, “This sounds like an interesting opportunity, but I just don’t have the time at the moment. Perhaps you could check back with me in [give a time frame].” Next time, when they check back with you, you might have some free time on your hands.

It’s not you, it’s me. This classic dating rejection can work in other situations. Don’t be insincere about it, though. Often the person or project is a good one, but it’s just not right for you, at least not at this time. Simply say so — you can compliment the idea, the project, the person, the organization … but say that it’s not the right fit, or it’s not what you’re looking for at this time. Only say this if it’s true — people can sense insincerity.

EXPANDING OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE


Faery Blessings:

Today as I was watching my favorite minister teach on tv and he was teaching on getting out of your comfort zone so that God can bless you more, it occurred to me that it was time for me to get out of my comfort zone...and then I opened my emails and Madisyn Taylor had an article on Expanding Your Comfort Zone...so it made sense that I follow through as I got double validation that I was to step outside of it if only for a day, maybe more....so enjoy today's message and Be Blessed!


Your current comfort zone has served you, but it represents your behaviors and patterns from your past.


"None of us are born with a guidebook that provides explicit rules for thought and behavior that will enable us to navigate life successfully. To cope with the myriad of complexities to which all of humanity is subject, we each develop a set of habits and routines that ground us, their continuity assuring us that life is progressing normally. Most of us know, whether instinctively or by experience, that transformations can be uncomfortable, but we always learn and gain so much. Any initial discomfort we experience when expanding our comfort zones diminishes gradually as we both become accustomed to change and begin to understand that temporary discomfort is a small price to pay for the evolution of our soul.

Your current comfort zone did, at one time, serve a purpose in your life. But it is representative of behaviors and patterns of thought that empowered you to cope with challenges of days past. Now, this comfort zone does little to facilitate the growth you wish to achieve in the present. Leaving your comfort zone behind through personal expansion of any kind can prepare you to take the larger leaps of faith that will, in time, help you refine your purpose. Work your way outward at your own pace, and try not to let your discomfort interfere with your resolve. With the passage of each well-earned triumph, you will have grown and your comfort zone will have expanded to accommodate this evolution.

Whether your comfort zone is living with your parents, or perhaps being too shy to socialize, or maybe it's not realizing your spirit self--whatever it is, start small, and you will discover that venturing beyond the limited comfort zone you now cling to is not as stressful an experience as you imagined it might be. And the joy you feel upon challenging yourself in this way will nearly always outweigh your discomfort. As you continue to expand your comfort zone to include new ideas, activities, goals, and experiences, you will see that you are capable of stimulating change and coping with the fresh challenges that accompany it."

COME TOGETHER: WHY WAIT?

 

Faery Blessings:

 

After reading Madisyn Taylors email today from DailyOM I thought about how many people I pass a day  that could probably use a smile, a moment, a thank you for their time….and I realized at that moment just how little I do for others….today I hope that I make someone’s day in a small way or a big way if possible…..enjoy today’s message and Be Blessed!

 

"In our world, there is always someone in need of our best efforts to rally a group of helpers and healers.

We humans have a knack for coming together and rising up to our potential in the face of a tragedy. Natural disasters and acts of violence bring us out of our small selves and into the world, ready to lend a hand to those in need. This experience is often life-changing for those who are willing to step into the position of helper. We feel as if we are finally doing something really important, and this leads us to feeling more self-actualized. We feel more connected to the people we are helping, as well as more connected to humanity in general. As we expand beyond the boundaries of our individualistic pursuit of happiness there can be a complete reality shift. We often find that it is much easier to be happy when we are motivated in an effort to make the world better in tangible ways, by coming to the rescue of those who are suffering.

Considering the many benefits of this kind of gesture, it is surprising that more of us don't devote our lives, or at least some portion of our time, to serving people in need. We don't have to wait for a tragedy to come together, as a community or a nation, and offer ourselves to the world in service. Sometimes it's easier, of course, to respond to an event that has just happened rather than to ongoing problems like homelessness, poverty, and illness. But the truth of this world is that there is always someone in need of our best efforts to rally a group of helpers and healers. Maybe we feel discouraged because these smaller acts and gestures don't generate the same kind of energy and attention from other people as heroic acts in the face of immediate disaster, and perhaps an effort to change this is one way to change the world.

The more we promote, applaud, and actively inspire humanitarian efforts in the world, the more others will be drawn to this kind of work. We might pay a little less attention to sports and celebrity gossip and a little more attention to those everyday heroes who devote their lives to alleviating suffering. The more attention we pay, the more we will inspire others and ourselves to be of service in a world that greatly needs our attention."

CHANGES: OH THE POSSIBILITIES!

 

Faery Blessings:

Yet again another email I received that I want to share with you about “changes” or “changing….today is pretty much short and sweet…..enjoy today’s message and Be Blessed!

"Sadly, many times people don’t believe they can be completely changed. And often they don’t believe other people can change. But the only thing that never changes is God (Hebrews 13:8). And He wants us to dare to believe that He “is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]” (Ephesians 3:20 AMP).

The question is what are you expecting God to do for you? Maybe you’re having a hard time believing that your kids can change, your marriage can improve or that you can ever lose weight, get a better job or get completely out of debt.

But Jeremiah 29:11 says God’s thoughts and plans for us are “for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.” He has a good plan for you, and you can dare to believe He can heal you anywhere you hurt and help you with every problem you face. It’s time to start expecting more from God than you’ve ever believed He would do for you before.

The key to having what God wants you to have is learning to think like He thinks. And Romans 12:2 teaches that we are transformed by the renewing of our minds. I’ve discovered several ways we need to change our thinking so we can live with the mind of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:6).

We need to change our thinking about…

God. It’s so important for us to know who God really is. He’s not an angry God, and He’s not “harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant” (Matthew 11:30). God loves you, and if you know how much He loves you right now, then you’ll have hope that the things in your life that need to change can be changed.

Ourselves. If you don’t like yourself, you’re going to have difficulty in every area of your life. Don’t demand perfection from yourself. No one is perfect, and no matter what we do, we usually don’t think it’s enough: we don’t pray enough, work hard enough, study the Bible enough, etc. God spoke to my heart one day and told me, “Joyce, you’re never enough, but I’m always more than enough.” That’s why Jesus came! Believe that in Christ, there’s more right than wrong with you, and you can do whatever you need to do in life through Him (2 Corinthians 5:21; John 15:5; Philippians 4:13).

Trials, or the hard, painful things we go through in life. Habakkuk 3:19 says God is our strength and He will help us to “walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make spiritual progress upon [our] high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!” James 1:2-4 encourages us to “consider it wholly joyful…whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials,” because “the trial and proving of your faith” are what God works through to make us “fully developed…lacking in nothing.”

The level of importance we put on what others think about us. It’s easy to let what others do and say affect us, and to feel like “If you don’t like me, my day is ruined.” But the truth is, if we’re more concerned with being a people-pleaser than a God-pleaser, we won’t become what God created us to be and do what He’s calling us to do (Galatians 1:10).


I want to encourage you to study scriptures that reveal God’s true character and His heart for you. And dare to believe that there’s nothing in your life He can’t change—including you!"

PATIENTLY WAITING: ARE YOU OLD SCHOOL OR MICROWAVE GENERATION?


Faery Blessings:

 

“Wait on God”…..It’s something we all must do, and it is usually something we “don’t” want to do….we live in a microwave generation who wants everything right “now”….my grandmother used to cook dinner for us and we had chickens and she would go out and get one of the chickens and it was our dinner and she would go into the garden and pick the vegetables and cook them up for dinner as well….now we have chicken nuggets, dinner in a box, etc…..you get the point……so I wanted to share this article from Joyce Meyer about “Waiting On God”….enjoy this short message and Be Blessed!

 

“I am a person of action, and when there is a problem, I am ready to take action, but sometimes I make the situation worse because I didn’t wait to get God’s plan. Being aggressive has many benefits, but it can also cause problems if we are acting independently of God.

I am reminded today of the importance of maintaining an attitude of waiting on God. I am not suggesting inactivity but rather the highest form of spiritual activity, that of trusting God in every area of life. Wait on Him for strength, healing, wisdom, and opportunity. Wait on God to reveal Himself to you and to show you His amazing favor. God is waiting to be good to us, and He looks for those who are waiting on Him (Isaiah 30:18).

Waiting on God is mostly an attitude of the heart. One that is fully aware that God is everything and we are nothing without Him. We should pray and refuse to take action without assurance that God is leading. Go to Him as early as possible each day, which is the moment you wake up. He is always near, and you need no special preparation to begin fellowshipping with Him. Always remember that God loves you unconditionally and is with you at all times.

Prayer Starter: Father God, I desire to form a habit of waiting on You all throughout the day. Help me not to rush ahead into activities and decisions without acknowledging You. Thank You for Your presence. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

PINK FULL MOON TODAY: HOW ARE YOU HOLDING UP UNDER IT?


Faery Blessings:

 

How are you holding up under this Pink Full Moon?  It is definitely a transformational and trying moon now isn’t it?  This is what we like to call the “make or break” period where God brings in these energies at specific times to get us back on track and not to mention still being in the shadow of Mercury along with this Full Moon means that God means business right now…..it is time to stop playing with the energy of God and get down to the business of listening to his counsel….which leads me to take this excerpt from Joyce Meyers Everyday Life Bible….sometimes the hard hitting truth is what we need…we don’t always like it when others tell us the truth, but it is sometimes necessary to pull us out of our own selves and get back into the business of doing His Will and in His Time….so during this Full Moon either make up your mind, heart and soul to get right or allow this Full Moon to break you and give up on all God has designed for your life as you walk through each lesson and each part of it(hard or easy) to get to the true core of who you are….and during this Full Moon if you find you are really angry over an injustice, then this is the time to open up and tell God “exactly” how you feel about your situations and your life….believe me He understands your pain and He knows that sometimes He has to take you down a hard road in order to get you back on the easy path He planned for you….I choose to use this Full Moon to bring me totally back into alignment with His Will for my life and I choose to use it to get "better" NOT "bitter"….enjoy today’s message and Be Blessed!

 

“We need to realize that God is smarter than we are(see Romans 11:34).  His plan really is better.  No matter what you or I may think, God’s way is better than ours.

I look back now at many of the frustrating times I went through in my life as I tried to make things happen in my timing and how I grew frustrated when none of “my” efforts worked and I “had” to wait.  I realize now that I was “not” ready for those things.

God knew I was not ready, but I thought I was.  I spent so much of my time asking, “Why, God, Why?” and “When, God, When?” I asked questions that only God had the answers to, and He had no intention of answering me.

Remember, God wants our trust, not our questions.  God does not need our counsel in order to work; He needs our “faith”.

TRUST GOD FOR EVERYTHING! BIG AND SMALL! WITH POWER COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY!

 

Faery Blessings:

 

Lately even though I am a strong person and a woman of faith, I do have had a crisis of faith….lately I feel overwhelmed to the point of exhaustion..and I know all my clients think that I do not ever go through anything and see me as this strong person who can handle it all, but honestly, I  have my days too where I have to go before God on my knees and plead with him as well….and usually always my prayer ends with “Thy Will Be Done!”….is it easy? No, but can I do it? Yes and sometimes yes with some resistance from inside of me but I always “trust” God and his plans for my life, and not my own!  Also when Joyce Meyer talks in her article about her ministry she was called to, she was implying that anything God calls us to do…it doesn’t have to be a big thing….he might be teaching us to trust Him in the big and the small things as well…..

 

“I remember when God told me to quit my full-time job where I was making very good money. He began to deal with me, saying, “You’re going to have to put that down and stay home and prepare for ministry.”

I didn’t obey quickly because I was afraid to leave my job. After all, how did I even know for sure that I was hearing from God? He continued dealing with me so I finally tried to make a deal with Him, saying, “I won’t work full-time, but I’ll work part-time.”

So, I went to work part-time because I was afraid to trust God completely. Dave and I didn’t have as much income as we had before, but I found we could survive on less money than we had previously. We had to cut down on expenses, but we were able to pay our bills. I also had more time to prepare for ministry. This seemed like a good plan, but it was not God’s plan.

I learned that God doesn’t want to make “deals” and I ended up getting fired from my part-time job. I was a good worker and had never been fired from a job before. Even though I didn’t like my circumstances, I was finally where God wanted me to be all along—totally dependent on Him.

Without a job, I had to learn to trust God for every little thing I needed. For six years, we needed divine intervention each month just to be able to pay our bills, but during that time I learned a lot about God’s faithfulness. He always provided, and what we learned through our experience enabled us to trust Him for the resources we now need to run an international ministry. I encourage you to obey God completely and don’t try to make deals with Him because they never work.

Prayer Starter: Father, help me to trust You more. Help me not to “lean on my own understanding” (see Proverbs 3:5) but instead fully depend on Your guidance and direction. In Jesus’ Name, Amen..”

Pink Full Moon In Scorpio On 29th April: One Of The Energetically Most Powerful Full Moons Of The Year


Faery Blessings:

I wanted to share about this weekends Full Moon……consciousreminder.com had an interesting article on it and how it is going to affect our lives….so I wanted to share it with you all so you could be prepared for what is coming and also remember we are still in Mercury’s shadow until first week of May….so this will be an interesting weekend…..I think it is the make or break period where we begin to fully absorb who we are and what God has placed in us that we are capable of doing and we begin embracing that with faith, strength and clarity of mind….enjoy the message and be blessed and also remember that the Full Moon pulls on you 3 days before, the day of and 3 days after the Full Moon....so from today until late Wednesday you will feel something deep going on inside..I hope you all embrace the healing and transformational energy of this Moon.

 

“This April’s Full Moon will occur in the sign of Scorpio. Taking place near the end of the month, 29th to be precise, it will signal a great tumult in the way we are dealing with things right now; some huge changes can be expected out of it.

The influence of the cosmos on us is undeniable during the Full Moon. This is the time to learn from the Lunar goddess and put humanity and compassion above everything and let go of the hate we have garnered against each other.

Astrological Influences

The Full Moon will take place at 9° Scorpio, while the Sun resides in Taurus. Taurus which is stubborn and Scorpio which couldn’t care less about anything are the best players for forming a yin-yang combination. Therefore, for some this April would be a great time to be alive but others would find it hard to maneuver through.

Moon sextile Saturn means that there will be a lot of push and pull between energies before harmony can be reached. But it will occur at all costs. The yin and the yang will balance out each other eventually. The feminine energy is strengthened during this time and can balance the usually overpowering masculine force.

Spiritual Significance

The Full Moon is also the time to let go of the past. Release those feelings and emotions which hinder and bind you. Now is the time to look forward to what the future holds for you instead of mulling over the past. All of us have the positive energy within us to help us March forward, we just need to reach within ourselves and tap into this source.

We have a force hidden within us. Be it the wizard, the witch or the angel. We have to believe in ourselves to tune into their power. This is the time to bring healing into our lives. And the way to do this is by having faith; the faith that there is an angel within each of us.

Have the Faith that we can shrug off the mistakes and wounds of the past and go forth into a bright future.  Remember for us to access the power of light; we have to become a part of it.”

8 REASONS WHY THE UNIVERSE SENDS PEOPLE INTO OUR LIVES:


Faery Blessings:

I was researching for interesting articles to read(I love to read new and interesting things) and this article came up from consciousreminder.com  and I wanted to share it all with you guys...enjoy the message and be blessed!


"We are sent many people during our lifetimes. Some of these people are meant to stay with us through it all and others are only here for a short while.

While we sometimes don’t truly understand why someone has to leave our lives especially when we want them to stay the lesson that those people teach us will remain with us forever.

Sometimes the most amazing person comes swooping in at the perfect time and everything is as if it were magic and other times you may be facing someone so toxic you don’t know how to continue on existing but regardless, you are growing into who you were meant to be.

Below you will find a list of reasons why people come into our lives. I hope this list helps you to better understand our human connections and where this life is taking each of us. Just because you don’t see the reason yet doesn’t mean that there isn’t one.


1. TO AWAKEN US WITHIN

These are the people that make you question things. They sometimes become permanent and other times are only here for a little while but they help us find parts of ourselves. These people don’t even have to be people we like.

2. TO WARM OUR HEARTS

These are the people who come to us when we are feeling down and out. They hold space for us and do small things that make a difference. These people are for the most part passing through and we never see them again but we think of them.

3. TO BE THERE FOR US

These are the people that become a permanent part of our lives. They are here for us through the things life throws our way. These are friends, family, and even lovers depending on the situation. They are our support system.

4. TO TEACH US A LESSON

These are the people that we learn from. Sometimes these lessons are hard to handle and sometimes the people attached to them are far from kind. It just depends on what the universe is trying to teach you.

5. TO HELP US GROW

These are the ones that are here for us through the roughest patches of our lives.

They are by our sides through heartbreak and extreme loss. These people are sometimes permanent and sometimes not. It just depends on how big of a role they play in the grand scheme of things.

6. TO REMIND US OF SOMETHING

These are the people who bring thoughts to our minds that we would have all but forgotten otherwise. They remind us that we are not alone and that this world is our home in times of need.

When we are ready to give up these strangers help us to pull ourselves back together and show us that we do not have it as bad as some people do.

7. TO SHOW US WHAT WE DO/DON’T DESERVE

Now, these people are a bit similar to the ones that help us grow but are a bit different. They can be the perfect people or the awful people it just depends on which one you are facing.

These people paved the way for what other kinds of people we allow in our lives. For instance, if we are facing someone we do not deserve we will learn from this and know not to let toxic people into our lives anymore.1

Sadly though, this is something that most don’t get right the first time.

8. TO LEARN FROM US

These people are the ones we are meant to teach. While others have things to offer us we also have some to offer ourselves. We are able to share lessons from time to time and the universe sometimes sends people our way that needs to hear the words we need to speak."

WHAT IS THE CONDITION OF YOUR HEART?

 

Faery Blessings:

 

This morning as I awoke to the sun coming up and my granddaughter telling me her hands were freezing(she is 2 almost 3 years old), so I went and got her blanket and pillow and made her a pallet in the floor and turned on her cartoon “Bolt”, I was reminded of how simple children like their lives to be and just following their natural rhythm and needs and wants and I realized that the condition of their hearts was pure and unfiltered….she didn’t skip a beat as she said I am hungry and we made her some breakfast and then she said “it’s time for Papa to wake up” and he did and they wrestled around the living room floor(a usual morning for us)…..and when I saw this article by Joyce Meyer’s about the “condition of the heart”, I smiled thinking of my granddaughter and her grandpa(Papa) and I knew that the conditions of both of their hearts at that moment was the purest form of love I had seen in a while….and it warmed my heart and took me to the same place they were in, so I joined in and became part of the morning love and hugs session….enjoy todays message and Be Blessed!

 

“What if I told you that I have a heart condition? What would your reaction be? Most likely, you would respond with gasps of "oh no!" You would probably feel sorry for me.

But the truth is, I do have a heart condition…and so do you.

 

Matters of the Heart

Your heart's condition depends on the things you allow into your heart. These things form your thoughts and attitudes, and ultimately, shape the deepest part of your being. No matter what your circumstances (the outside) are, if your heart (the inside) is right, you're going to be okay.

But if wrong things in our hearts go unattended, they will become deeply rooted and harder to deal with. The quicker you can detect a wrong heart condition and get it straightened out, the better off you are.

So how do we do that?

 

How to Guard Your Heart

As Christians, we need to check our hearts a lot more often. Because many times, Christians can go through the motions and keep doing the "Christian thing," but something has crept in their hearts and is hurting them and others.

Proverbs 4:23 says, Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life (NLT). Notice that it doesn't say somebody else will guard your heart. It doesn't say God will guard your heart, your neighbor will guard your heart or your pastor will guard your heart. It says you need to guard your heart.

You're in charge of guarding your own heart. Realize that it's pretty much a full-time job because we don't know on any given day what's going to come up. You don't know what somebody may say to you that may hurt you, disappoint you or let you down. Then suddenly, there's a wound in there that needs to be dealt with.

Since you just don't know, you have to constantly be working with the Holy Spirit to keep your heart right.

 

The Most Important Thing

“One of the biggest revelations I've received from God is that my real life is the life that's in me.” There's nothing more important than your inner life—what's in your heart. (See 1 Peter 3:3-4) One of the biggest revelations I've received from God is that my real life is the life that's in me. The same goes for you! Life is not your circumstances, the kind of house you live in, the kind of job you have or how much money you have. You can have the best of these things and still be miserable.

On the other hand, it's amazing how happy and peaceful you can be in the middle of the lousiest circumstances, including the turmoil that's going on in the world today, if you keep your heart in the right condition.

Matthew 5:8 says, Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God (NIV). I love that! Do you want to hear from God? Keep your heart pure. Do you want to know God's secrets? Keep your heart pure.

Taking time to keep your heart pure is similar to cleaning out your basement or attic. Once you turn on the lights and start looking around in there, don't be surprised to find some things you didn't expect.

 

Darts of the Heart

Jesus said some pretty strong things about the heart. He said if you see a woman and lust after her, then you have already committed adultery as far as your heart is concerned. (See Matthew 5:28) Lust has a tremendous effect on the heart, which is why we all must guard against it. Just look at how it's destroying the lives of people who look at the pornography that's so easily available today!

Another fiery dart the devil tries to shoot into our hearts is hatred. The Bible says if you hate your brother, it's no different than if you murdered him. (See James 4:2) We must "raise our shield" to keep our hearts pure.

Preventing Further Heart Damage

I have found that if I can capture my thoughts for God early in the morning, through prayer and meditating on Scripture, then it's easier to protect my heart. Or, I can risk waiting until the afternoon, when I've already let the enemy use it as a garbage dump for awhile and then try to get a handle on it. Obviously, it would be better to start my morning doing the right thing!

I want you to understand this: Every time you feel like doing the wrong thing and you choose to do the right thing, you are growing—and God is smiling.

So, develop self-control. Keep your commitments, keep your word and do what you know God wants you to do. And every time you feel like doing the wrong thing, choose to do the right thing.

I'm not saying that you ignore your feelings. We need to take care of our emotions. I tell God how I feel. But then I also tell Him what I will do through His strength and power. The bottom line is, if you want to be a victorious Christian, guard your heart—even when you don't feel like it".

CHOOSE LOVE EVERY TIME OVER FEAR!

 

Faery Blessings:

 

Today and the last few days God has been directing me to try to see others through his eyes versus my own human eyes and feelings and mind…..it is has been a hard journey as I come from a past that says “people are what you see them doing or their actions”, but God brought it to my attention that “before I tried to get the wood of my brothers eye that I should get the beam out of my own”….And I thought of years past that I gave my parents cause for concern and cause to give up on me completely, yet they did not, they chose to love me through it all and believe me in my younger years, I inflicted a lot of emotional and financial abuse to their lives…..I am grateful they did not give up on me which the last couple of days has instilled in me that if I was worth their love and support through it all, that so are the people around me, no matter what they are doing, God sees the good in them and I should do my best to see the same through his eyes…that is why I am sharing Madisyn Taylor’s “Choose Love” today…..enjoy todays message and Be Blessed!

 

Make all decisions from pure love and the world will change.

“Love is often presented as the opposite of fear, but true love is not opposite anything. True love is far more powerful than any negative emotions, as it is the environment in which all things arise. Negative emotions are like sharks swimming in the ocean of love. All things beautiful and fearful, ugly and kind, powerful and small, come into existence, do their thing, and disappear within the context of this great ocean. At the same time, they are made of the very love in which they swim and can never be separated. We are made of this love and live our whole lives at one with it, whether we know it or not.

It is only the illusion that we are separate from this great love that causes us to believe that choosing anything other than love makes sense or is even possible. In the relative, dualistic world of positive and negative, darkness and light, male and female, we make choices and we learn from them. This is exactly what we are meant to be doing here on earth. Underlying these relative choices, though, is the choice to be conscious of what we are, which is love, or to be unconscious of it. When we choose to be conscious of it, we choose love. We will still exist in the relative world of opposites and choices and cause and effect, and we will need to make our way here, but doing so with an awareness that we are all made of this love will enable us to be more playful, more joyful, more loving and wise, as we make our way. Ultimately, the choices we make will shed light on the love that makes us all one, enabling those who have forgotten to return to the source.

This world makes it easy to forget this great love, which is part of why we are here. We are here to remember and, when we forget to remember again, to choose love.”
